Home with new siding and an American flag

When you’re shopping for windows, it can be overwhelming knowing where to begin, because of the sheer fact that there are so many options available. Here at Bak Brothers, we want to make it easy for you! If you’re wondering how to buy windows in a way that works best for you, we can help.

Read on to find out more about the three different buying methods we offer our customers and to learn more about our window selection so you can make the right choice for your home.


When you’re ready to get started with your window replacement project, you can schedule a free in-home consultation with one of our window experts. This helps to ensure that we know the most important details about your home, so we can make informed suggestions for your replacement windows.

Over the course of the appointment, one of our sales representatives will sit down with you to learn more about why you want to replace your windows. Then, they’ll help you determine which options make the most sense for your needs.

They’ll also show you different design and material options, take measurements, and answer any questions you have about the replacement process. They’ll end your appointment by giving you a free, no-obligation quote for your window replacement.


Would you prefer not to have anyone come to your home at this time? That’s ok too! We also offer convenient online consultations if that works better for your needs. Simply sign up for a virtual appointment with our team, and you’ll receive an email with a link to click at your appointment time.

During your virtual consultation, the sales representative will ask you to provide measurements for your windows and may ask to see photos to help them give you the best recommendations. They’ll also show you different window designs, materials, and color options, and tell you more about the installation process.

Just like the in-person consultation, your virtual appointment will end with a free quote for your project so you know what to expect should you decide to move forward.


Finally, you also have the option to come to our office in Northbrook for an in-person consultation. When you do, you’ll be able to see product options in person, so you can get a better idea of what is available to you.

You’ll also be able to sit down with one of our sales representatives to ask questions and talk more about the specifics of your project. We’ll give you a free quote at the end of the meeting, and if you’re ready to move forward, we can even get your project on the books before you leave!


Before you decide which method you want to use to get more information for your window replacement project, here’s a quick overview of the different types of windows we offer.

Aluminum-Clad Windows

These windows have a wood frame that’s coated with aluminum, making them nearly maintenance-free. Aluminum clad windows are also highly customizable, so you choose virtually any color or style that appeals to you.

European-Style Windows

Also known as tilt and turn windows, european style windows are a great option for spaces that need extra ventilation, like bathrooms or basements.

Fiberglass Windows

One of our most popular window options, fiberglass windows help seal out the elements and are very resistant to moisture. They’re also extremely durable, which makes them a great option for our Illinois winters.

Vinyl Windows

Vinyl windows are another popular option, as they are cost-efficient and very easy to maintain. They also provide moderate insulation, since vinyl won’t become too hot or cold during periods of extreme weather.


With many of us working from home now, we get less sunlight that we did before. Skylights are a great way to add some much needed light to our homes.


Now that you know how to buy windows from Bak Brothers, you can choose the option that works best for you! Whether we come to your home, meet with you virtually, or connect with you in our office, we’re here to provide you with high-quality products and the best customer service every step of the way.
